Aside from matching the Redmi 3 in specs, the phone also sports a full metal body, similar to Xiaomi’s Redmi 3. Unlike Xiaomi, Lenovo has a good track record of selling phones revealed in China here in the PH, though they may take a different name when sold locally – remember the A7000 Plus and the K3 Note? The Lenovo Lemon retails for┬áRMB 699 in China, roughly 5K converted.
